If you have ever dreamed of becoming a songwriter but were unsure where to begin, this course will answer the mysteries of songwriting. You'll explore song ideas, melodies, co-writing, song and story structure technique, rhyme schemes, lyric development, the "marriage" of melody and lyrics, chord structure and playing in public. You will also study music theory as it relates to songwriting and investigate the business of songwriting: demo recording, music publishing, record release and protecting your songs.
